Cool thing around pictures, as most of twitter clients can upload them
themselves and make a short links in the posts, so, we can try to use that
links and put them into nodes as well!
Also @mentioning - we're adding both ways now - so, you'll be able to use
@osm_it - to hide your mappings from your followers, or #osmit - as it works
Next, a MapDust - have to get in more with service, as it makes sense to use
it with osmitter.
For now, when you're adding a POI, you'll get a @reply from osmitter with
link to the node on the OSM, like this:
http://twitter.com/#!/osm_it/status/87777704488865792 - so, you can check it
on the go.

btw, cool to have this kind of feedback!
